LA Wildcat fans got some bad news on Tuesday where it has been reported that quarterback Josh Johnson could be “questionable” for Saturday’s season opener against the Houston Roughnecks.

Ryan Dyrud with The LAFB Network reported Tuesday night on Twitter that Johnson has been fighting an unknown injury that has his opening weekend start in question. He’s expected to be a “game-time” decision for the Wildcats.

Josh Johnson’s Path to LA

Johnson was an NFL journeyman who saw his last stop taking place in Washington for the Redskins in the 2018 season. He started the last few games for Washington. Mike Martz drafted him with the San Diego Fleet of the AAF in the quarterback draft before signing with Washington.

Johnson was assigned to the LA Wildcats before the XFL Supplemental Draft back in November. He battled with Luis Perez for the job but had been reportedly winning the job throughout camp. His veteran leadership, along with his strong arm and mobility skills, won him the quarterback job.

The New York Guardians traded for Perez during training camp. The Wildcats got Chad Kanoff in that deal. The Wildcats listed Kanoff as their backup quarterback on their reported depth chart released Tuesday.

The LA Wildcats will play their first game of the season on Saturday against the Houston Roughnecks.
